my wife has had headaches for close to a year now and is recieving nerve blocker shots and they help, but in the last 2 weeks shes started to studder and have mouth twitches, could this be a sign of an early stoke.

It's possible that she could be having something like that, but it seems more likely that it would be medication side effects. Has she started or stopped any medications, or made any dietary changes recently? Have her ask her neurologist about these new symptoms.

How frequently does she get the shots? They should last around a year. What type of headache is it, a migraine or tension/neck-related? What other meds is she taking? Look them up and check for side effects.
